Eillis Coffey loves animals and hopes his pet caterpillar Tink can win at the Banner Elk Woolley Worm Festival. Like the horse whisperer, Ellis is convinced he has a gift for training Tink and together they can win the annual race. The prize is $1000 and his family needs the money to pay for his dad’s back surgery. At school Eliis is known as the class clown with brains, and he offers much comic relief to his classmates. An empathetic and humorous story from the author of the Gym Shorts series. Ages 8-10
